Reception

Welcome to Hamilton and Shireen Class

I hope that you enjoy finding out what we are doing in our classes. This will be an area that will celebrate our learning and keep you up to date with the things that we are learning about.

Happy Learning!

Early Years Curriculum

The children develop through playing and exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically. There are 7 areas of learning which are divided into the Prime (Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development) and Specific areas (Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design).The prime areas are fundamental throughout the EYFS and the specific areas include the skills and knowledge which provide important contexts for learning and they develop more fully towards the end of the early years. The children carry out lots of practical experiences through    which they are encouraged to explore and experiment.

The children use both the indoor and outdoor classroom during teacher directed and child initiated times. We have a particular love for outdoor learning and come rain or shine, we explore and play outside in our outdoor environment.

Reading

Sharing books with your children can be incredibly useful, and very special, whatever the age!

Tips for reading with your child can be found here.
